What does NFF think of them?
Good? Bad? Unrealistic standard for women? This is usually a hot topic among teens, so I'd like to hear what you have to say.

I never really bothered about the whole "unrealistic standard of women" argument. They're dolls. They're for being played with. They don't have to look "realistic" (which, imo, is a really vague word to be used in this context anyway - explain to me what the concrete "realistic" standard for a woman is). As a child I had a box full of Barbie dolls, and never did I once look at it and think "I guess I have to look like this when I'm older", I just played with them because I thought it was fun.

Bratz were more of an issue than Barbies from what I saw online a few years ago. Many mothers were complaining that they looked too 'unrealistic', since their daughters were bashing their heads again sinks and etc to make their heads as big as the dolls'.

I don't think the issue totally lies with the dolls. Even as a young kid I had the common sense to realise that a person either didn't, or did not have to, look like that. I just think the parents should be teaching them these things to be honest.

Also, as I said, the "unrealistic standard" argument is retarded purely because women (and men) are unique in their own way. There are too many different body types for there to be anything like an "unrealistic" or "realistic" standard of women/men. Furthermore you hardly hear anything about the standards set for men. Women complain all the time that men constantly judge them by their bodies, while women also unconsciously judge men on their physique. It's in our nature to do that. People obviously also have different 'types' that they're drawn to, so why say that all men like 'curvy' or 'skinny' girls? They don't.

I apologise for going off topic, it's just something that's been bugging me for a long time.

Everything in the media is an unrealistic standard for women these days, especially in the eyes of feminists. That's for a different thread though.

They aren't bad, they're toys. If a girl wants to look like a plastic toy, she hasn't been raised properly. Barbie is hella ugly.

I agree with JemStar, in my opinion the argument that they set unrealistic goals for kids is just reading a bit too much into it. Of course kids like "attractive toys". What fun would a G.I. Joe be if he looked like he couldn't even do a pushup?
